Seriously, when our hard-to-find Tohatsu OB fuel connector broke off rendering the dinghy inop, I was able to order one and have it delivered to our next stop in <48 hrs.

A boat is like an RV camper. You want to put lots in it. But in reality there isn't as much storage as a house. So you learn the art of selectivity, stowage, security.

Your limits will be based upon your needs.

If you intend to call SeaTow, then an extra large wine locker is all you need.

But if you want to fix it yourself the other long list is pretty good for a start. But you may have to tow a barge behind a 40'er to carry all that.

What did you carry on last boat?

If you have tow service in your waters, I'd get tow insurance. It's the best $150 I spend each year on the boat!

Along the lines of FF's suggestion, I carry a collapsible wagon (Costco $60) if I expect to haul food or other bulky items a significant distance. It stows flat in the lazarette.

Wifey B: There are a bazillion things but think space savers. Here is one I love, collapsible, foldable. laundry hampers. These are also light for carrying laundry and a great way of carrying clothes off and on the boat. Basically carrying anything. Perfect container that weighs 5 ounces. They come in other shapes and sizes but we use these at home and on the boat.

And yet no one mentions a Radar, GPS/chartplotter, Depth Sounder, Auto Pilot, AIS, VHF/DCS, paper charts, charting hardware, etc. etc.

Maybe some assumptions....

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.

Good to emulate the Owl and the Pussy-cat. Honey is optional, but bring plenty of money.

Many moons ago when I was a green first year Apprentice, my Journeyman sent me to the tool room for a 3" Hickey (a type of hand conduit bender that doesn't exist in that large of size!) and a Bunyan . Tool rooms were always manned by the grouchiest old Electrician on the job. When I ask for the tools, ol' Vernon cussed me out for wasting his time and sent me back to my laughing crew.... At lunchtime, they were having great fun at my expense, and ol' Vernon asked my Journeyman what in the hell is a Bunyan. Journeyman told him that if I managed to come back with a 3" Hickey, we'd need a Paul Bunyan to handle it!

We assume that a basic electronics package was spec'd with the boat.

[QUOTE=tomkallman;480128]Hi... Taking delivery of a new NT40 in January and wondered if you all would share some of your experience You know how when you take your kids off to college, what do you suggest I also plan for?

First of all a vasectomy, you won't be able to afford any more kids now.

Secondly, band aids, you can never have too many band aids.

Lastly, a sense of humour helps- you will do something stupid at some time, and someone will notice, and worst of all they will ask you if you need some help.

That said, you may just have bought yourself a chance of having some really wonderful adventures. Don't forget to give her a good name, she's part of the family too.

Welcome aboard the good ship TF

You need one of everything, and a spare for each one. Keep that up until the money runs out.

This reminds me of the benefits of buying a well-stocked used boat....

Since I bought my boat, I've removed about as much stuff as I've added.

Me as well. Although some stuff I haven't taken off the boat yet as I don't know what it is.

I did find another storage compartment the other day. It was filled with filters for a water maker that the PO removed years ago.

Boy did you ask for it. most of us have tons of stuff we learned to keep on board over the years.

IMO the what you carry depend on how confident you are fixing stuff.

Everyone should know how to change fuel filters and have stuff for that.

Other than that go use your new toy and along the way you will start to decide whats you want to change. Have tow insurance, bring a credit card, charts and just get going.

The suggestion to spend time on the boat and figure out what she needs is a good one. I'm new to my boat (and new to big boats in general). I've spend several days and nights on the boat just familiarizing myself and studying the systems.
